Etymology[edit]

Probably from Proto-Brythonic *koɨs, from Proto-Celtic *koxsā, ultimately from Proto-Indo-European *koḱs-. Cognate with Old Irish cos (leg) and Latin coxa (hip).

Alternatively considered a loanword from Latin coxa, but the semantics make an inheritance from Proto-Celtic more likely.
